Congress Deal to Avoid Shutdown Includes Victory for Banks

Updated on

Congress will vote this week on a $1.1 trillion spending plan that would avert a U.S. government shutdown as Democrats agreed to roll back rules affecting banks, clean water and rest for truckers.

The House will vote on the plan tomorrow, Speaker John Boehner told reporters today. The Ohio Republican said he looks “forward to it passing with bipartisan majorities in the House and the Senate in the coming days.”
